Springboard's Buddy Day – try a job for size

Springboard's Buddy Day will soon be hitting the streets across the country and we're busy signing people up everywhere to get involved in trying out a job in the hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism sectors. Buddy Day is all about highlighting what a great place the world's fastest-growing industry is to work in - and we need your help to make it happen.

Across the nation we want companies, organisations and individuals to participate in showing what a myriad of opportunities exist for people with drive, ambition and personality. Chief executives will be swapping jobs for the day, or they'll be going back to the floor, working in a leisure centre, acting as a commis chef or delivering pizza.

Students, unemployed, career changers, careers advisers, JobCentre Plus staff and people planning to return to work can be invited to visit for the day or maybe to shadow someone in their job to see what a company can offer career-wise. Buddy Day will be showcasing this vibrant sector, one which makes a significant contribution to the economy of the country and which is always on the lookout for people with flair.

Buddy Day is on Wednesday 11 October, and it's not too late to register your interest. Visit www.springboarduk.org.uk/buddyday2006/ to register for a Buddy Day experience. Have fun.

Chief executive, Springboard UK
